Book description
Left a quadriplegic, blind, and mute after a bomb explosion, Elise spends her days confined to her wheelchair and listening to the world around her. We are privy to what she hears and what she thinks and, surprisingly, the results are never pitiful. Rather we are able to listen in to a witty, charming, and strong woman whose will is as strong as ever.

After her first adventure, Elise and her maid and companion, Yvette, are headed for the mountains for some R&R. Elise has had another operation and she can now move one arm, but she is still unable to communicate except to write down her thoughts and her questions for others — if only they'll take the time to read them. Before leaving, Elise receives a fax from somebody who tells her he has become a big fan of hers after reading about her first adventure. She is concerned because the guy sounds like a lunatic, but, she reasons, all famous people are subject to hearing from people several sandwiches short of a picnic.

However, when Elise arrives at the resort, she hears about a series of grisly murders and, when she is invited to visit a home for the handicapped, she is treated like a star. But the murders continue there. Worse, the murderer is there among the patients, whispering messages into Elise's ear.

As in Death from the Woods, the stage is set. Elise is in danger but can't explain why, and the murderer inexplicably is using her as his/her confidante. Those around her who can see are in the company of the murderer, but there is no way Elise can separate the voices from the whispers she hears.

-----------------------------------

Elise Andrioli, the unforgettable heroine of Death from the Woods , is back on the case. Having solved the mystery of the child serial killings outside Paris, Elise has become sort of a minor celebrity, selling the rights to her story to a mystery writer named Brigitte Aubert.

Despite having regained mobility in her left arm, Elise is still blind, mute and confined to a wheelchair. When her uncle offers her his chalet at the ski resort of Castaing, she and her caregiver Yvette take off for what they think will be a few days of rest and relaxation. While she is there, she is invited to appear at a recreational center for disabled persons. But as soon as she arrives, an unknown person presents her with a gruesome gift that is linked to a horrible murder that has just been committed in the town. Then, some of the residents of the recreational center begin dropping like flies, and, all too soon, Elise discovers she has become the object of the killer's fancy.
